Well drilling is often referred to as an art rather than a science as it requires a talented, experienced and skilled driller to bring in a great well. Well design choices and drilling technique affect how efficiently the water enters the well and how the well performs.
The more efficient the well, the less pumping lift is required and the lower your yearly energy costs. Agri Industries employs licensed and experienced drillers. Our drillers are licensed in North Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming and have extensive drilling experience as well as intimate knowledge of the area geological formations and drilling conditions.
Please contact any of our offices for a free water well drilling quote. The well drillers’ schedules are very busy, so we would ask you to please make your appointment to have a well drilled in advance and provide the fully refundable 50% down payment as a means to secure your spot in our lineup.
Domestic, Stock and Municipal Water Wells
Agri Industries has drilled domestic well at depths up to 1500 feet deep. Our drillers use an approved drilling mud and high chlorine concentration drilling water solution when drilling domestic wells. With this method, potable water contamination is avoided.
Agri Industries uses only stainless steel screens. These screens provide more durability and more flow area than methods often used by other drillers. The down hole screened area is also packed with a sand filter. Domestic wells are completed using 5" PVC casing.
PUMPS & PLUMBING
Our experienced crew can also install a pump in new wells and then plumb it into your home.
Irrigation wells are completed with 10", 12", and 16" casing and typically produce between 800 to 3000 gpm. Irrigation wells also use stainless steel screens that are the same size as the chosen casing.
Irrigation wells are drilled using Revert drilling mud when possible. Traditional drilling muds tend to seal off the production formation and require longer pumping times to completely clear the formation of drilling fluids. This means that the highest possible flows are not achieved until considerable pumping is done. Revert drilling fluid is an extremely high-yielding drilling mud that breaks down when dosed with high concentrations of chlorine.
Accordingly, the driller can dose the irrigation well with chlorine to clear the formation of drilling fluids, allowing for full pumping rates to be realized quicker. In addition, each well is gravel packed to provide a good granular material around the well screen.
We also use a unique wash-down sub that was invented by our drillers. This wash-down sub provides an excellent cleaning of the screen by back flushing the screen with clean non-formation water.
This area is being developed.
Well Development and Redevelopment
After a well is drilled, a process called well development must occur to ensure proper connection with the aquifer. We work with the physical characteristics of the aquifer in order to allow water to flow more freely toward the well.
These processes can be used on existing wells that have dropped in performance. Our ability to redevelop wells can save the expense of drilling a new well when the existing well has the ability to continue to produce with rework.
Test Hole Drilling
Unsure if you have any water where you want to place an irrigation, domestic, or stock well?
Agri Industries provides our drilling expertise at a reduced per foot rate to provide you with a clear picture of the water producing formations under your land. The data from experimental test holes, previous experience in the area, records of well logs, and working with the state geological services can help us to determine how much water you can expect.
